  10. Welcome 10 3. Course Description (5/5) CS2100 is not difficult CS2100 is more on the breadth rather than depth, hence there are many topics giving the impression that the course is tough. Theory + practice. All topics are somewhat linked, so good understanding of earlier topics (especially the fundamentals) is important for later topics.
